Frequently Asked Questions
Is it Safe to Charge My EV at Home?
Yes. The charging station is designed so that no electricity flows through the cord or coupler until after it is connected to the vehicle.
What is Needed to Charge My Electric Vehicle at Home?
Technically, you can charge your electric vehicle with a level 1 charging station. However, this is the slowest type of charging. A standard household outlet is considered a level 1 charging station. A level 2 charging station is the better choice. This is the fastest way to charge your electric vehicle at home. It can be installed on the side of your house or in your garage.
Will My House Require Additional Wiring for My EV Charger?
Yes. A Level 2 charging station requires a dedicated 240-volt circuit. Installing one is a simple project for a handy electrician, such as an electrical contractor from CIR Electric.
